Frozen Hot Chocolate-and how to use THRIVE Chocolate Drink Mix

We love hot chocolate.  Every winter I know I need to stock up because my husband and kids drink a TON of it.  But one of our favorite creating is Frozen Hot Chocolate.  Okay we did not come up with the idea, but a while ago Oprah featured it and my Mom found a mix for it and we all tried it.  Well we really like it.  My enterprising husband says "I think I could make that" And he did.  It is really very easy.  Ice, drink mix, water and a blender and you are there.  I have included some info on other ways to use your chocolate drink mix.

Frozen Hot Chocolate
My husband created this recipe a while ago after we tasted the frozen hot chocolate that Oprah made famous a few years ago.   The consistency should be like that of a Wendy’s frosty.
2 cups ice
¼ cup chocolate drink mix
½ cup water

Add all ingredients to blender. Blend well.  Serve.

Other THRIVE Chocolate Drink Mix Recipes:
Hot Coco
To make 1 quart: Add 1 cup Chocolate drink mix powder to 4 cups hot water. Stir well. We usually use our hot chocolate machine. Love it when making hot chocolate for the entire family.

To make 1 cup. Add 2 ½ tablespoons to chocolate drink powder to 1 cup hot chocolate. 

Chocolate Milk:  To make 1 gallon
In a 1 gallon picture, add 3 cup chocolate drink mix to 4 cups very hot water (we usually use boiling). Stir until completely dissolved.  Add enough cold water* to make 1 gallon.  Refrigerate until cold.  Serve cold. 
*If you want to drink it sooner instead of adding cold water add ice to make 1 gallon.
